[movies]2007 Arctic Sea Ice from AMSR-E with Greenland in Foreground - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
Sea ice is frozen seawater floating on the surface of the ocean. Some sea ice is semi-permanent, persisting from year to year, and some is seasonal, melting and refreezing from season to season. The sea ice cover reaches its minimum extent at the end of each summer and the remaining ice is called the perennial ice cover. The 2007 Arctic summer sea ice has reached the lowest extent of perennial ice cover on record - nearly 25% less than the previous low set in 2005...

[image]Tectonic Plates and Plate Boundaries (WMS) - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
The Earth's crust is constantly in motion. Sections of the crust, called plates, push against each other due to forces from the molten interior of the Earth. The areas where these plates collide often have increased volcanic and earthquake activity. These images show the locations of the plates and their boundaries in the Earth's crust. Convergent boundaries are areas where two plates are pushing against each other and one plate may be subducting under another...

[movies]Incoming Solar Flux Compared to Clouds (WMS) - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
The Earth's climate is determined by energy transfer from the sun to the Earth's land, oceans, and atmosphere. As the Earth rotates, the sun lights up only part of the Earth at a time, and some of that incoming solar energy is reflected and some is absorbed, depending on type of area it lights. The amount of reflection and absorption is critical to the climate. An instrument named CERES orbits the Earth every 99 minutes and measures the reflected solar energy...

In a new study, NASA and United States Geological Survey (USGS) scientists found that retreating glaciers in southern Alaska may be opening the way for future earthquakes. The study examined the likelihood of increased earthquake activity in southern Alaska as a result of rapidly melting glaciers. As glaciers melt they lighten the load on the Earth's crust. Tectonic plates, that are mobile pieces of the Earth's crust, can then move more freely, which increases the probability of earthquakes occu...

[movies]West Africa Dust Storms - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, The SeaWiFS Project and GeoEye, Scientific Visualization Studio. NOTE: All SeaWiFS images and data presented on this web site are for research and educational use only. All commercial use of SeaWiFS data must be coordinated with GeoEye (http://www.geoeye.com).
On the Coast of West Africa, dust storms are a common occurrance, if you take a look at this one, its about the size of Spain. SeaWIFS returned this dramatic close-up view of a vast, developing cloud of Saharan desert dust blowing from northwest Africa a thousand miles or more out over the Atlantic Ocean. Aerosol particles larger than about 1 micrometer in size are produced by windblown dust and other sources...

[movies]TRMM Satellite and TMI Swath - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite was launched on November 27, 1997, as a joint mission of NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA. TRMM has five Earth-observing instruments on board and circles the Earth every 92 minutes in an equatorial orbit between 35 degrees north and south latitude so that those instruments can measure precipitation in the tropics. One of the instruments, TMI, observes five frequencies of microwave emissions in a 780-kilometer wide swat...

[movies]Ocean Planet: Final Version - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
The Ocean Planet is a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution which opened in Washington DC on April 22, 1995. A part of the exhibition was a computer flyby of the Pacific Ocean developed in the SVS. This animation represents a stage in the development of that flyby. Note: An animated fly-by from a point in space above North America to soar over the Pacific, then to dive near Hawaii and fly underwater past Japan, through the Mariana trench, to resurface near New Guinea...

[movies]Chemical Model Animation of O3 Losing an Oxygen Atom to a Radical - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
Ozone is very reactive. It easily loses the third oxygen atom in the presence of other highly reactive compounds called radicals, which contain chlorine, hydrogen, nitrogen, or bromine. Minute quantities of these radicals can cause large decreases in ozone because they are not consumed in the reaction. This is called a catalytic cycle. Note: O3 losing an oxygen atom to a radical. Animator: James W...

[movies]Behold, A Whirlwind Came: The Science of Tracking Hurricanes - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio This video includes footage licensed from The Weather Channel and cannot be reused without permission.
This documentary-style video shows how NASA computer modeling research is contributing to an improved understanding and forecasts of hurricanes. It weaves interviews of three Goddard Space Flight Center scientists with scientific visualizations and live-action footage of hurricanes and the scientists studying them. The video focuses on application of the NASA finite-volume General Circulation Model (fvGCM) to the 2004 Atlantic Ocean hurricane season...

[movies]Great Zoom into Orlando, FL: Epcot Spaceship Earth - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl...
